FAIRPORT, NY — Noah Vom Scheidt becomes the first international player to sign a tender with the Rochester Jr. Americans the team announced Thursday.
Vom Scheidt was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on Dec. 8, 2003. He played the last two seasons in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) for the Renfrew Wolves. The CCHL is a Canadian Junior hockey league operating in eastern Ontario, Canada. The league is sanctioned by Hockey Canada and is a member of the Canadian Junior Hockey League.
Vom Scheidt is a 6’3″ forward. He more than doubled his offensive production between his first and second season in the CCHL. This past season, he tallied 16 goals and 28 assists for 44 points in 54 games.
A tender is a contract, of sorts. A player signs announcing his intentions to play for that particular NAHL team and that NAHL team only. Once a player signs a tender with an NAHL team, his playing rights belong to that team within the NAHL and he may not be recruited by any other NAHL team. Tendered players are not eligible for the NAHL draft.
The Jr. Amerks are pumped to have Noah and would like to wish him congratulations!
